Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia’s Ministry of Transport is going to develop an integrated port in Labuan under the government’s 11th Malaysia Plan.
According to Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi, a strategic location has been identified in Rancha-Rancha Industrial Zone.
“The integrated port will eventually materialise and we have acquired a 2,009-hectare land in Rancha-Rancha to build the port with better facilities and infrastructure,” Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said.
He said Labuan, being a regional oil and gas hub, needed better port facilities to cater for the long-term demand, and the exsiting port facilities needed to be further enhanced and improved.
The country’s Economic Planning Unit is looking into the allocation of funds to assist in the infrastructure development. [25/11/14]
